MORE than 30 of the state's best acts will bash out original tunes alongside some of the Australia's premier bands and an international headliner.
And it's all happening in a Burns Creek paddock, near Blessington.
The party will be run as a two-day independent music festival and could be the beginning of a fresh annual event for the greater Launceston area.
Party in the Paddock co-ordinator Jesse Higgs has a drawcard up his sleeve.
``At this point there's a huge possibility that we'll have Xavier Rudd confirmed to play,'' Higgs said.
``We've received about 200 emails from bands across the state and interstate who want to play. It's at the point now where we can't fit them all in - but we will be having a jam session on Sunday.''
Sydney's Sticky Fingers and Lovers Jump Creek will share the stage with Tasmania's The Mornings, The Lawless Quartet, Younger Dryas, Thieves, Guthrie, The Embers and more.
Event promotions manager Emily-Rose Wills said there was space for camping and there were positions open for food, coffee and clothing stalls.
``We're looking for volunteers to help out with running the event,'' Wills said.
``There will also be a second announcement of bands in the first week of February.''
January earlybird tickets are $40 and are available from www.trybooking.com.
Alcohol is BYO or can be bought at the event, strictly no glass.
